    I understand that and personally I also rarely have the time to search for/buy/test used devices, my point is…if you don't want to spend more that 600€, you will have to improvise :) or go for the colorkunki and cut back quality-wise.

    I took a quick a look on ebay and the few i1Pros where either sold on the other side of the world or where already out of budget.
    I bought 1 of my i1Pros used on ebay for 350€ (this was more than 1 year ago before it's the successor was introduced) and saw a few other auctions ending at about 400€.

    But as I said, if your priority is display profiling, I think it's a not a bad idea at all to buy an i1 Display Pro and add an other device for printer profiling later. Or to buy a colormunki (which may or may not meet your requirements in terms of profile quality and flexibility).

    btw. why the heck does this forum censor the word "o_n_e"?! ))

    Hello,

    I'm sorry for the late reply but I've been away for a while...

    At the end I've bought the i1 Diplay Pro and I've calibrated correctly my monitors.
    Probably the i1 Display 2 was broken...

    By the way...
    Which kind of monitors (specifically, as the i1 Display Pro requests me) are:
    MacBook Pro (bought in 2007);
    Cinema Display (bought in 2007, still with the satinated gray frame around);
    MacBook Air 13" (bought in 2010)
    Cinema Display 27" (just bought)

    I guess they're led display, but which kind?

    Thank you very much!


    Ale

    im just curious, how exactly did you make the judgement that the calibration was correct? And what is your opinion on the newer calibrator and software?

    Hello king of deadlift,

    well the calibration was clearly wrong as the screen, after the calibration process, had a very strong green tint that it would have been impossible not to notice.
    It really seemed there was something wrong when you were looking at the monitor...
    So...no rocket science... :-)

    Software wise...
    I am not an expert but I like it, still it's very similar to the previous (Lion Version).

    I really like the new calibrator and I am happy of my purchase.
    Practically speaking it's easier to use as the counter weight is directly integrated in the usb cable (you don't have to remove it all the time but just to slide it) and the calibrator has a cover that protects it from the dust and enables the diffuse light reading.
    I think that this new model is much more handy than the previous .

    Results wise I think it's better.
    Performing the quality tests I now obtain much better results than before.

    Bye!
